Mommy Lunch:  Chickpea Tomato Wrap

Mommy Lunch: Chickpea Tomato Wrap

Often times, I eat whatever Meghan is having for lunch.  If she’s having a mashed banana and tahini sandwich , I go ahead and have one, too.   Some days, however, I just want something that I know Meghan most likely won’t want.  I’m not saying this wrap isn’t kid-friendly, some kids may in fact love it, it just isn’t Meghan-friendly.  She’ll eat chickpeas in their whole, unmashed state, but mash them up and turn them into a salad, and her texture issues will most-likely come into play.

This wrap was one of the first things I made when Tim and I were doing our 30-Day Vegan Challenge , over a year ago now.  At that time I was still learning creative ways to replace meat protein.  There are so many delicious ways to do so if you let yourself let go of the meat-has-to-be-in-every-meal mindset.  You don’t need super exotic ingredients.  It’s especially easy if you have a well-stocked healthy pantry .  I made this wrap, unplanned, at the end of the week, when I really needed to go grocery shopping.  I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand.  It’s a simple recipe and makes a delicious lunch you could have ordered at a cafe. But you didn’t.  You made it yourself.
